Though it appears slow at times, the book presents a world fraught with chaos and religious fervor at a pace that allows the reader to form grand images in her mind. Like a rich tapestry created by the artists hands, each thread/page in this story, when seen as a finished work, builds to a grand panorama. Enjoy the view in your mind's eye and hope the artist creates more works of art this captivating.
I found the story to be very simplistic and predictable. The narration was very slow also... This is the first Audible program I had to turn up to 1.5X speed.
Narrator. Way too many pauses. Felt clipped.
He sounded like a William Shatner parody with over-acting and far too many pauses.
I couldn't even listen to the book because the narration was so bad. I will just buy the book and read it myself.
Nothing ever happens. It takes way too long for the story to go anywhere and the end makes no sense. The premise is rediculous. The character development takes too long for the amount of story content.
I want to hear more about Elantris and her people. Totally epic story. Mister Sanderson, created a world that is mixture of ancient mysticism and magic
I can't think of anyone who could listen to this book.
It is a big possibility.
Everything. Jack Garrett's performance is one of the main reasons I quit listening to the book in the ninth chapter, and it was a struggle to get even that far. I can't explain the feeling he gave me as I listened. It ls like trying to explain the feeling you get when someone scratches their finger nails on a chalk board. How can you explain such a horrible feeling. You just can't.
All of them mostly the terrible little kids. The Twins. Awful characters. There could be more awful characters later in the book but I just couldn't get that far. The princess was pretty bad too. Or maybe the characters were good but it was Garrett's performance that made me hate everyone of the characters
If I had purchased this book, in the page form, I would have done everything I could to destroy it and then killed it with fire. This book was a waist of my time and money and Garrett's performance killed a little bit of my soul. For those of you who rated this terrible book to give a above four star rating, shame on you. Shame on you.
I'm an avid reader/listener who enjoys a well written book. I prefer sci-fi/fantasy,mystery/thriller/horror. King,Koontz,Butcher and Child are among my favs. (Scalzi is becoming one ).
Not quite as Organized as his later works; but a very good lusten. I would recommend this book .
I loved this story. Love, empires, gods among men and people trying to see the best in everything.
